Art Gallery of Nova Scotia director and CEO Ray Cronin will step down after seven years in the job and 14 years total at the gallery. allNovaScotia is reporting that he was fired by the AGNS board. Cronin will be replaced in the interim by Lisa Bugden, the former head of Film & Creative Industries Nova Scotia, an organization that was recently disbanded by the Liberals. Bugden starts Monday.

From a post on the AGNS website today:

“We sincerely appreciate Ray’s significant contribution to the Gallery and the arts in Nova Scotia,” said Robbie Shaw, Board Chair, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. “Ray has been steadfast in his passion and dedication to growing the province’s art collection, community and culture for many years. His leadership role in initiatives like the internationally recognized Sobey Art Award, a program of nationally and internationally touring exhibitions of senior Canadian artists with close ties to this region, a strong publications program, and numerous donations and gifts of art has provided a strong legacy for us to build on. Under his leadership the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia achieved a level of stability that finds us well poised for moving forward. We wish him well in his future endeavors.”
